Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to provide primary data so that Belarus can be incorporated into existing Global Performance Indicators (GPIs).

Design/methodology/approach

The authors conducted a survey following World Economic Forum (WEF) methods and combined our data with publicly available information.

Findings

The authors find that Belarus would have risen from 61st in the 2012/2013 Global Competitiveness Index to 55th in 2013/2014. The authors also estimate a position of 125th on the 2018 Economic Freedom Index.

Research limitations/implications

Many GPIs have flaws and the findings outline how they can be improved to gain more accurate views.

Practical implications

Policymakers can now make meaningful judgments around how competitive the Belarusian economy is, and the extent of economic freedom relative to its peers.

Social implications

Belarus has received sanctions on account of its policy environment and this paper sheds light on the current state of economic freedom.

Originality/value

The paper utilises primary data that has been previously unpublished in the English language.

Abstract

Subject area

Entrepreneurship.

Study level/applicability

This case is suitable for graduate-level programmes in business management, as well as for executive education programmes.

Case overview

Mabel Simpson, the sole proprietor of the award-winning mSimps fashion accessories house in Ghana, must choose from among three options for scaling up her business: an offer from a private investor for GHS 100,000 in exchange for 51 per cent stake in mSimps; or 30 per cent stake for half the amount; an offer from a fashion industry expert for GHS 10,000 in exchange for 30 per cent ownership; or a restructuring of her business model and value chain to enable her release cash to grow her business organically.

Expected learning outcomes

Students should be able to: understand the interplay of choice and trade-offs in business management and apply theory-driven frameworks in making optimal choices and analytically assess instances of tension between the art (e.g. passion, emotional stakes, psychological and other influences on business management philosophies) and science (e.g. the need for business skills, use of effective models and the quest for production efficiency) of business management.
